Small Towns, Small Minds

I can only take so much of the in-laws. With their most recent visit, MILDEW rearranged all of Chloe's dresser drawers, did Chloe's & my husband's laundry but didn't touch mine & enjoyed arguing with me about EVERYthing....Fine. I can vent it all out once they are gone.

But I just cannot bring myself to forgive nor ignore ignorant hatred. And that's all I can call it. If you were to call them out & dare say "racist" they would vehemently deny it.

How else should it be taken when comments go like this:
"I just know is about 10 years the world will be slant-eyed amalattos." (his pronunciation)
"I just don't understand their language." (After walking away from an African-American cashier.)


I thought our society had come so much farther than this crap. I suppose it could have been worse, but it made my gut churn, nonetheless. I felt so stupid for not calling them out. I was in such shock & disbelief. I had never heard anything like this from them. Their verbal vomit is usually just their distaste for me. I suppose a sliver of silver lining would be that my husband didn't "inherit" their thinking.

I'm tired.

I'm drained.

Life's complicated.

I need a drink.

suck it up

I can't take it. Oh- boo hoo - you're supervisor said you have to get caught up and make goal. So did mine - I say ok - when I am able to do my work in an 8 hour day and not have to work OT w/out getting paid and have a normal desk - I will work on it. Then I go back to my desk - bitch and then continue working - It's called being a grown up - you should try it sometime.

How did that happen

Is it a booty call if it's planned? A friend and a guy- he says - come over tonite - I want you to spend the night. It's the first time hookup for them. Is it a booty call since it's planned in advance.

why is she getting a boy toy? Yeah - she's a slam dunk - but so am I and I won't get attached. She will.

stupid boys And yeah - when she is 18 years older then him HE'S A BOY

Stupid Girl

(I'm hearing that 90's song by Garbage in my head when I think of this girl.)
Young. Newly pregnant for her first time. One income couple.
I offered her some of my maternity clothes. Expensive ones, at that. Hardly worn. Quality.
Her reply?
"No thanks. I'm just not gonna let myself get THAT fat."

Do I kick her ass now?

Welcome to our cozy neighborhood where we drink mimosas & martinis at noon on Mondays & welcome anyone. Come as you are & join us, won't you?

We would love to have you. If you are tired of not being able to be who you truly are, at your current home & you're interested in "moving in" to our neighborhood, drop the Home Owners Association a line. We have lots of secrets to share. We're sure you do, too!
